Do We Love This Change?

The Division recently solicited comments on proposed changes to EDI Rules. According to our good friend Steve Nichols of Sentinel Governmental Affairs, the biggest issue is the short window of time provided for testing of the submission of claims EDI data.  In comments to the rule, Steve proposed additional time for testing so that insurance companies, EDI trading partners and the DWC could ensure successful claims data reporting. Steve cautioned the DWC and stakeholders to avoid a repeat of the NPI EDI data element change that resulted in enforcement actions, that could have been eliminated with adequate testing.  We await the DWC rule changes and hope that adequate consideration is given to these concerns.
